Create Video Clips Using Your Transcripts

Clipmaker v3 is a new take on our classic Clipmaker tool, providing 3Play Media customers with a powerful video search and editing tool at no additional charge. Clipmaker is typically used by content creators or video editors to search across transcribed video files and create clips by highlighting the text of the transcript. You can splice together clips from multiple files, export video and caption file assets for rough-cut editing or download/print the working reel for review, all from the 3Play Media Account System.


How Does It Work?


The 3Play Media transcription process produces transcripts that are time-synchronized word for word. This means that every word has a reference to a specific point in the video timeline. Clipmaker v3 uses this time-text data to enable textual video search and editing.


Clip Highlight Reels

To create a video clip, simply highlight the spoken text and add it to a clip reel. A clip reel can contain clips from multiple media files. Clips within a reel can be rearranged by dragging them up or down.

Toggle Keywords

Easily toggle keywords in the transcript to view the most predominantly used words or terms in the video.

Video Search

You can search across all of your videos down to the spoken word. Results are returned on visual timelines showing the location of each occurrence. You can drill down further by clicking on a timeline to expand that section of transcript. You can then play that section of video or add it to a clip reel.

Print and Export

Clip reels can be saved, printed, or exported as new video assets for rough editing. A print-out of a clips reel contains references to the start and stop times, duration, source media files, and a tag cloud of frequently occurring words.

User-Friendly Display

Clipmaker v3 features a display with greater contrast and responsive video/interactive transcript size to make this tool more accessible and usable.
